James O'Keefe encourages tea party members to conduct investigations
James O'Keefe, who gained fame secretly videotaping groups like NPR, Acorn and Planned Parenthood, addressed a crowd of tea party activists, encouraging them to conduct similar investigations.

O'Keefe, a New Jersey native and Rutgers graduate, told the packed room of about 150 that his project is about exposing hypocrisy. He encouraged those there to partake in their own efforts, including in response to a question saying he would like to see citizens target judges with similar videos.

"Anyone who is abusing the trust of our people needs to be investigated," O'Keefe said. "It's not a conservative movement. It's not right-wing. It's a movement to expose hypocrisy."

O'Keefe's speech was part of the tea party "citizens convention" to train activists how to organize and run political campaigns. The one-day convention was titled "The Battle for Trenton" and focused on strategies to win legislative seats in the November election.

1. I really wish O'Keefe had tried one of his secret tapings in Illinois
because then he would be in prison. That is a big no no in Illinois, you can not record sound without the permission of that person unless you have a warrant.

2. This is what comes from the media treating that little weasel like he was a "kid"

playing "pranks".. He's the "in your face-on the street" arm of the RNC/FOX gang.

Just about ANYONE can be coerced into saying something dumb, and with everyone walking around with recording devices, look for a LOT more of these things to be pumped out (re-edited) from FOX..

NO ONE is EVER "off the record" anymore...or out of camera-shot.

3. Ok seriously..
95% of the tea party people are so out of it and lost that they couldn't investigate their asses up their heads let alone anything of importance. And O'Keefe is a little shit that will last a year or so more before someone gets pissed off and beats his little ass to a pulp.
